    1. Eh tbf people would of complained about the price had the Ms had more accessories because remember how hard of a time people had buying any hg above 3000 yen?

    2. Tbf, armaments in HF's units intended to be simple. Difference with Xi and Penelope they have extra armaments that installed in body parts, not separate weapon like before.

  2. Still no Xi? Well, that's fine, I guess, Messer's pretty cool too...

    1. It's not as hype if they show the main event early on

    2. They're gonna show it off once the movie actually comes out probably

    3. The movie is trilogy. Xi obviously don't appear yet in early part. Much like how Banshee don't appear yet in first episode of Unicorn.

    4. Maybe at least when the 2nd movie is announced, we will then have some Xi.

  3. There's my chunky Zeon-esq boy! And judging from it's internals, it can look at it's feet! They are really upping the articulation in the non-Build Divers stuff lately.

  5. So, another needlessly gimmicky HG with the price tag of RG? What's not to like...

  6. Has anyone else spotted the major difference between this design and the line art (G-Generation)?

    1. I'm honestly kinda into it, it makes the dark red right below the knees stick out more.

      Anyway, they probably simplified the legs down a bit for the movies. You'd be shocked how much time and effort they're going to save animating a bunch of Messers by eliminating a few of those lines and separated colors.

  7. The 2019 HGUC Gustav Karl disappointed me. The overall kit is solid but the ball hip joint ruined it resulting the wiggly legs. Ball hip joints should not exist in newer HG at all. Hopefully no ball hip joints for Messer..
